It was time for Sibbald to flee the nest. He had his trial at Luton which would have brought us some money in but that didn't work out so I think after all he'd done the club were right to let him go. 

He's made a decent career for himself but nothing like the career we all expected from him given how talented he was as a youngster. 

Am I right in thinking that he was ill when he went down to Luton? Not in a ready to drop way but just not feeling 100%, or am I just making that up?

It may have been around that time that we got beat 2-1 by Dumbarton at their place, and it really looked bad for him. He wasn’t just having a poor game, it just looked as though he had chucked it.

Don’t know if he was unwell or just unhappy, but it was the single worst performance I ever saw him give us.

At least he got a few years in the top flight, but leaving a club with a hardcore of 3000 to 4000 supporters to one with a hardcore of 400 to 500 may have seem him earn a bit more money, but it was hardly what we expected of him. I think we all that he was easily good enough for EFL Championship, but his one flaw was a very evident lack of pace.

If I am being cynical it coincided with all the shit happening on the park from an outsider looking in Miller and Kerr have had good moves and made some good money (only speculating) and they put the seed in his head which coincided with individuals downing tools.  Long story short seed planted,, didnt want to be there wanted away.

Not only that but Miller and Kerr were both seen on the grassy knoll in Dallas...

Got a reply from my Hully Gully mate (hasn’t missed a game since retiring 8 years ago), and he reckons Jevon Mills is a proper prospect. Only had 4 minutes as a sub v Cardiff, but they have high hopes that he will become a first team squad player next season.

Total stand out in their youth team. He reckons he is coming to us to get the rough edges smoothed off, and to get a bit of a battering that he isn’t exposed to in the youth team.

I am sure Sammut and others have rocked up with similar high praise, so will just have to wait and see.

Would love to sign Craig but it shows how far we have fallen when we pin our colours to the mast on a 35 year old from St Johnstone
Who cares. Horses for courses. No one thinks Craig will be dominating midfields in a push for promotion from the Championship.

He can come in, body some diddies this season then slide into a coaching role where hopefully as a seasoned winner, leader and moaning b*****d, he wont tolerate a procession of powderpuff wee dicks who could beat a fox at hide and seek in the midfield.

If we can just get a half decent rest of the season out of Craig that will be fine as long as we don't have to pay anything for him.  Can't really expect more than that at his age.

Mills flicked on a header at a corner with his 1st and only touch from which Cardiff hit the post.
